MEET ENTRIES

Teams are permitted unlimited individual entries per event.
Each participant is limited to a maximum of 4 (four) individual events. All events are timed finals. Current USS rules will govern strokes, turns, start, finishes, etc.

Meet Eligibility

Swimmers must be a registered swimmer of a participating swim team, having participated with this team only during the course of the summer season. All swimmers must swim their ages on June 15, 2021. No one will be allowed to swim up in age. A swimmer may not participate with a USS club after December 1 2020. Members of a scholastic swim team may continue to train with a USS team per County rules.

Entry Deadline

Team entries are to be submitted using the export file from the Team Manager and sent to [email protected] by 5 pm on Sunday, June 7, 2021. No changes are allowed beyond the June 7 entry deadline. 

Add/Scratch

NO ADDS WILL BE ALLOWED PAST JUNE 7. Coaches can scratch swimmers from the meet each morning, 7:15 – 8:45 am at the desk. Once FINAL heat sheets have been delivered to the Referee NO changes can be made. All swimmers must properly check in with the Clerk in order to swim. If a swimmer enters the clerk area and sits down without checking in they will not appear on the Referee sheet and will not be able to swim. Please make every effort to inform the Clerk when swimmers scratch so we do not hold up the meet waiting for them to check in.

VIP PARKING: We will be offering VIP parking passes for our parking lot behind the pool. These parking passes will be $20 per day, however, the passes usually sell out prior to the meet. These passes will allow you unlimited access to the parking lot throughout the meet. We will provide more information about how to purchase passes when they become available for sale, closer to the meet day.

GENERAL PARKING: There is general parking in the main school lot, on the street at the front of the school and in the Pleasant Oaks Park across the street from the school. Please do not park in the Library parking lot.

OFFICIAL PARKING: Officials will be able to park in the reserved lot by the Basketball and Tennis Courts. These names must be submitted by team meet directors.

TEAM AREAS

Team areas will be located in the school hallways & on the school fields. Team areas will be assigned as team entries are complete. 1st team with completed entries and documentation will be assigned their area first and so on as entries and documentation are received. Team areas can be set up on Friday evening at 5:00 and can be kept up throughout the meet. Out of respect to the school, please ensure your team area is as clean after the meet as it was when you arrived.

If tents, chairs or other personal belongings are left overnight, Pleasant Hill Dolfins Swim Team and other affiliated agencies are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
